An indigenous grape variety from the Alto Adige. The wine has evocative aromas of violets, blackberries and raspberries that combine with a hint of spice and has a velvety texture and a long finish.
Cantina Tramin, founded in 1898, has 280 member winegrowers who follow its strict directives on the cultivation of the vines and covers 230 hectares of vineyards situated on the sunny slopes at an altitude of 250-700M above sea level. These vineyards are an integral part of the enchanting and picturesque landscape of the Alto-Adige region of northern Italy. In 2011 Tramin gained the "double Stella". This is given to a winery for achieving the prestigious "3 Bicchieri" 20 times and is awarded by the Gambero Rosso.

The grapes were de-stemmed and fermented at 28-30C in stainless steel and cement vats where malolactic fermentation took place. Aged for at least 6 months in oak barrels of different dimensions as well as cement vats.
This wine pairs extremely well with roasted game, pork or lamb, and flavorful cheese.
